Tony Nese and Ariya Daivari def. The Bollywood Boyz
I guess Bollywood Boyz are basically babyfaces now. To their credit, they did well in the role here and it turned out to be a better bout than I was expecting. Daivari and Nese work well together and Bollywood Boyz showed some great babyface fire. They even came close to securing the win a few different times, but Daivari and Nese went over as they should have. That said, this didn't serve much of a purpose aside from getting the heels back on track following a handful of losses.
Ashante "Thee" Adonis def. August Grey
I'm never sure sure whether Adonis is supposed to be a babyface or a heel, but he was clearly playing the heel role here. The two of them had a quality contest as you'd only expect from them. Daivari walked down to the ring to lambast Grey over not winning when he could have by count-out, which ultimately cost him the victory. I'm surprised this Grey and Daivari rivalry is still going, but at least it's logical storytelling and keeps both guys busy. Adonis was able to get a rare win out of it, too.
We've been seeing the same few faces on the show for months now, but at least they've been putting in the work and having impressive performances. This was a perfectly solid show with the two well-wrestled matches we got. Grey vs. Daivari remains the top feud on this program, but we need more than that, specifically the NXT Cruiserweight Champion Kushida. I enjoyed his open challenge on Wednesday night, but he should be pulling double duty and appearing on 205 Live as well. On a side note, this show also marked the return of Tom Phillips as the play-by-play announcer with Vic Joseph now exclusive to NXT and Adnan Virk replacing him on Raw. That's a definite demotion, but at least he and Nigel McGuinness make for a fun duo.
